Condition: I would grade this banknote as nice extremely fine or much better. The banknote is clean and has no stains. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, no tears, and no splits. The edges are intact and show no roughness. The note retains most of its original stiffness, sheen and crispiness. The corners are intact with no bumps but are slightly rounded. Also the note has a light vertical fold in the center which is difficult to see but is there. Because of the fold and the slight rounding of a couple of corners we are grading the note as extremely fine instead of about uncirculated or better. The colors of the note are clear, vivid and very bright. A very nice note in excellent condition to add to your collection. Please see photo for additional condition information.
